Add a Little Something to the SiDCOR Giving Tree

SiDCOR The Salvation Army Christmas Appeal

Keeping with tradition, SiDCOR has again taken part in The Salvation Army’s Christmas Appeal. This year, we’d like to extend an invitation to our clients and partners to join us in giving to those in need. Your contribution will help make the season a little brighter for someone less fortunate. If you are able to donate, please stop by our Newcastle office at 50 Hunter street before Tuesday the 19th of December.

We understand that the festive season is a busy time, so if you are unable to participate, please know that we have also made a donation on behalf of our valued clients.
